Eight years ago I gave birth to a precious little son
and we named him Parker William Ankerich.
He was 22 weeks~ too little and too sick for this world
but not for Jesus.
He had his birthday and Jesus day all together. :)
I have always been very sad on this day
but this year seems to be a little different.
I had a great peace today...
Maybe having Will on the way allows
my heart to begin dreaming of a son again~
love in my heart (Parker) and love in my arms (Will).
So we remember Parker with a beautiful tree
we planted at our old house 8 years ago,
flowers placed in our church last week,
and pinwheels we placed on his grave today.
I received these sweet words from a friend
who lost her son just like me...
I am thankful God has allowed us to love yet another little soul~
one waiting far away in China for HIS forever family.
Parker will always be in my heart
and I look SO forward to the day Will will be in my arms!!!
Both boys named after their daddy~
Parker William and William Scott Minzhong. )
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us,
to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations,
for ever and ever! Amen.
